Starting off in Edinburgh, the UK leg of Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour has been slowly making its way southward through the UK – and now she’s finally landing in London. Swift is arriving off the back of three nights at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield, three nights in Anfield, Liverpool, and a single show in Cardiff. This weekend she’ll perform the first three of eight shows in total this summer at Wembley Stadium. 

More than 700,000 people will make their way to Wembley to see Taylor shimmer, with 90,000 attending each night of the concert, so it’s safe to say that Wembley Park tube station is going to be seeing a lot of traffic. 

If you want the night to go as smoothly as possible, it’s worth planning your pre- and post-Eras travel plans ahead of time to avoid ending up in claustrophobic queues for packed buses at 1am. Luckily London’s public transport is quite extensive and reliable, so if you really try you can probably mastermind your way back home before midnight.

Here’s everything you need to know about getting to and from the Eras tour at Wembley stadium.

How to get to Taylor Swift’s concert in London

Tube

The fastest and easiest way to get around the capital is by the Underground – there are two stops you can go to. 

Wembley Park station is on the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines, while Wembley Central is on the Bakerloo line and Overground (not a tube, but still operated by TfL).

Train

By train, Wembley Stadium Station is served by Chiltern Railways with direct services to Marylebone. 

Bus and coach

If you’re travelling from another city by coach, National Express runs services which will take you straight to the stadium, which you can book here. If you are getting a coach into Victoria Bus Station it is easiest to travel to the stadium by bus or tube. 

There are several local bus services which serve Wembley Stadium including 18/N18, 83/N83, 92, 182, 206, 223, 297 and 483

The Citymapper app comes highly recommended by locals for planning transport across the city. It can be downloaded on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for free. Apple Maps and Google Maps are also pretty handy. 

Car

The venue recommends anyone who is physically able to use public transport does, but if you do come by car you must book a parking space in advance. Unfortunately this service is already sold out for the June Eras tour dates.

If you are a blue badge holder and hold specific accessibility requirements, there is detailed information available here for you to ensure you are able to safely and easily access the stadium.
